(The Simpsons/Futurama Crossover Crisis II#1 - BTS) - In New New York circa 3005 A.D. Professor Hugo Fansworth built a Literary Reality-Tearing Machine which he used to summon characters from a Simpsons comic to his universe. However, Bart Simpson began messing with the device, accidentally leaving it stuck in the on-mode. Hearing Farnsworth shouting out warnings to Bart to keep the device away from any books, the robot Bender sought to save the day by throwing it out the window, but unaware of its specific ability to unleash fictional characters from the pages of books he instead tried to ensure it would land somewhere no people ever went - the New New York Public Library, where they had every book ever written. Within seconds the city was overrun with hordes of fictional characters from history's greatest novels.

(The Simpsons/Futurama Crossover Crisis II#2 - BTS) - Farnsworth's device opened a vortex next to the library, out of which fictional characters poured to begin taking over the city. Since there were graphic novels in the library, this included heroes from both the DC and Marvel universes, who made sure to stand partially in shadows for copyright protection.

(The Simpsons/Futurama Crossover Crisis II#2) - As Bart Simpson pursued Anne of Green Gables and Pippi Longstocking, who were in turn chasing his sister Lisa, he was intercepted by Wolverine and Captain America. Stopping, he saw they were accompanied by fellow heroes Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Spider-Man and Thor. Spider-Man warned to prepare for a brutal beat down, but Bart, aware that comic characters would fight one another at the drop of a hat, informed the Marvel heroes that their DC compatriots had called them sissies. Immediately Wolverine and his friends leapt for the DC heroes, allowing Bart to escape as a melee erupted. 

(The Simpsons/Futurama Crossover Crisis II#2 - BTS) - The fictional characters, presumably including Wolverine and his fellow comic book heroes, were eventually persuaded to return through the vortex to the pages of their books.

Comments: This iteration of Wolverine was created by Ian Boothby, James Lloyd and Steve Steere Jr.

    Since he's a representation of the comic book Wolverine brought to life, he should in theory have all the real Wolverine's powers.

    What reality he comes from is a question to debate. He appears in the Futurama comics universe, which I believe is distinct from the Futurama cartoon universe (or rather universes, since there's no question Futurama has a multiverse, and the comic switches from being set in one reality to another during the series' run). However, he got there via a portal allegedly extracting him from comic books, so really only his comic is native to that reality, and it's long established that all fictions are based on actual realities. So it could be argued that he is a fictional construct based on 616 Wolverine, except that Farnsworth's device wasn't intended to create beings based on literary characters but instead to bring them into Farnsworth's reality. Then there's the option that he might be from the Ideaverse visited in Deadpool Killustrated or the Realm of Fiction from Fantastic Four: True Story - which might be one and the same anyway.

Wolverine is an alternate reality counterpart of

but has no known connections to:

Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Captain America, Spider-Man and Thor

Wolverine's fellow comic book superheroes also confronted Bart Simpson. Superman complained about Bart calling their media of origin graphic novels, asking what was wrong with calling them comic books. Before they could beat Bart up, he tricked them into fighting one another.
